By a nearly 2 to 1 margin, Americans support the notion of striking a deal with Iran that restricts the nation’s nuclear program in exchange for loosening sanctions, a new Washington Post-ABC News poll finds.
ut the survey — released hours before Tuesday’s negotiating deadline — also finds few Americans are hopeful that such an agreement will be effective. Nearly 6 in 10 say they are not confident that a deal will prevent Iran from developing nuclear weapons, unchanged from 15 months ago, when the United States, France, Britain, Germany, China and Russia reached an interim agreement with Iran aimed at sealing a long-term deal.
Overall, the poll finds 59 percent support an agreement in which the United States and its negotiating partners lift major economic sanctions in exchange for restrictions on Iran’s nuclear program. Thirty-one percent oppose a deal.
Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araghchi also said Iran insists on being allowed to continue research and development of advanced centrifuges used to enrich uranium — an issue that casts doubt on whether the country's nuclear program is peaceful.
Those two issues appeared to be the remaining sticking points in ongoing talks between Iran and the P5+1 group — the United States, Britain, France, Germany, Russia and China — on a deal aimed at ensuring Iran does not try to develop a nuclear weapon.
"It is not possible to have a deal without lifting sanctions, all sanctions must be removed," Araghchi said. "Until we have solutions to all problems we cannot have a comprehensive agreement."
Another Iranian negotiator, Hamid Baeidinejad, said Tuesday that the P5+1 had agreed to lift sanctions on Iran's oil, gas and banking sectors as soon as a deal is implemented, though details had not been worked out.
